These are my top three suggestion, they’ll guarantee your date, spouse, boyfriend drooling all over you – if that’s your aim. Now, please take your personal silhouette and proportions in consideration when styling. Know what will work for you, for example an open back would be challenging for me to pull off seamlessly because I’m top heavy. My bra will show ( which to me kills the whole look) otherwise I’ll have to invest in the proper under garment. I would go for the bandage dress if I wanted to knock him dead, I have killer curves and this material extenuates and frames curves well!
I had a fourth outfit idea, lace dress, but that one is tricky that’s why I didn’t include it. Most guys don’t equate it to sexy, if your guy is fashionably informed and you know how to style it the way he would like it, go for it! I say go for black, other colors don’t scream sexy as much as black does … whatever you do, skip white lace – that screams marriage and you know how that scares some of these boys!! #SMDH
Now about Valentine’s, I’m personally in-different to it. I have never really celebrated it, I have always seen it as an event that I would grow to appreciate when I’m married. I think then, with kids, career, a husband and a lot on your plate is when you may need such a day. Now, I don’t pressure “M” about it, I’m just that cool-ass type of girlfriend, he got lucky! If we feel like it, we may do something but no pressure from either parties of gifts or anything … just how we like our love – pressure free!
If you’re celebrating, enjoy. If not, try to shift the focus to family love and friendship love, don’t get hung-up on ” Oh I don’t have a Valentine” nonsense! We are too old for that! Hit up some old friends or re-profess your love to your family in a cool way, bake a cake or something!

A quote dedicated to M :
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.” ― Pablo Neruda
